5.0 out of 5 stars GENIUS - A MASTERPIECE, 21 April 2007
This review is from: Pat & Margaret [DVD] (DVD)
This is why she is marvellous. This 90 minute film is one of the BEST things she's ever done. It has everything wonderful about her writing in it and a great original story.

It was unbelievable that it was forst screened as part of a series of BBC1 dramas on a Sunday evening. This was her first dabble in doing a feature length story for the TV screen and it is wonderful.

Victoria plays Margaret - who works at a service station. The girls she works with take her to a TV show called Magic Moments - which is abit like Surprise Surprise.

At the same time international soap star Pat has come all the way from America (played by Julie Walters) - to go on a TV show to advertise her book.

Little do both of them know the real reason why they both appear on Magic Moments. And when they do - both their lives are never the same again.

This tackles a clash of classes - it tackles the past that always comes back at you, theres some sad moments, some hilarious moments and Thora Hird has been given some wonderful lines!

This is truly faultless. Caroline Ahearne was inspired by this piece of work. If Victoria Wood is remembered for Acorn Antiques, then she should also be remembered for this. It is amazing.
